Creating a sub-theme from the CivicTheme theme

CivicTheme provides a starter theme and a script to generate a child theme for you to get started with.

Run the following command from within civictheme theme directory:

php civictheme_create_subtheme.php <theme_machine_name> "Human theme name" "Human theme description" /path/to/theme_machine_name

This will generate a sub-theme in path/to/theme_machine_name theme directory with everything ready to be installed and compiled.

Enabling sub-theme

Enable the theme in UI or with Drush:

drush theme:enable theme_machine_name

Compiling sub-theme assets

Run the following command from within your sub-theme directory:

npm run build

NodeJS version >=18.14 is required to compile front-end assets.
